communication skills of fdr, reagan or clinton. obama frequently comes across as a teacher and not a motivator. he fails then to frequently excite and motivate the broad public he must reach, although he isn't doing that in the current campaign. there's a recent article in the sunday edition of "the new york times," entitled obama plays to win in politics and everything else. the author paints a picture of obama that gives greater insight into hand and how he might function as a second term president. i'm quoting now now from the article. four years ago, barack obama seemed as if she might be a deliberate professor of a leader. maybe with a touch of hawaiian alan s. he has turned out to be a voraciously competitive perfectionist, friends say so in interviews. mr. obama's own words say it best. he is a perpetually aspiring overachiever. as he faces off that romney, obama's will to win and fear of losing is in overdrive. he is cramming for debates against an opponent, raising money and a frantic pace to narrow the gap with mr. romney and embracing to do anything it takes type take a minute recen
don't know what kind diplomat. >> hillary clinton is a rock star, i don't know if president obama used her to the fullest extent. she covered more countries over 100. and what we may see from john kerry is perhaps more focused diplomacy. certainly he has a lot of experience on the syria front. in the past he has worked, and i've written about this, as an informal envoy for the united states in afghanistan and elsewhere. and he'll be hankering for that kind of role where he can make a difference in some of these conflicts. there is a sense my sense from talking to people in washington is that president obama would like to pivot to asia but there is no doubt that he'll remain bogged down in one way or another in the middle east and north africa as we've seen in the past few days has become a major problem. that's where we'll see senator kerry head pretty soon. >> michael: let's talk about north africa, at least 35 people were killed when the islamists took hostage at the bp facility. is this another area we have to worry about al-qaeda. we talk about it with mali and somalia as well. is
in their second term focus more on foreign policy than the first term and try to forge a legacy. bill clinton did that in his second term. barack obama will try to focus more on the middle east, maybe more on syria. the most pressing issues are domestic. his voters expect him to act on that. he will attack in the first two years. history also tells us after the midterm election of a second term president start to fade away into sort of a lame duck status. >> interesting analysis there. thank you very much, max. in more international news suicide bombers and gunmen attacked afghanistan's travel police leaving three officers dead and more than three wounded. rather assault began at dawn at the entrance to the complex, the second coordinated raid in as many weeks. taliban claim responsibility. it is feared there could be more of these attacks in the months ahead as international forces prepare to withdraw. voter it is are ready to say goodbye to the chancellor's conservative government. >> it shows the social democrats and greens grabbing power with one seat majority over the christian democrats and

. >> one of the reasons i supported president obama was i did not want to see larry summers in the white house. [laughter] with hillary clinton, until the end of her campaign, there was not a sense of how she could bring her history to bear. it was very much a restoration ist campaign. he fell if you are going to get the clinton administration part 3. -- you felt as if you were going to get the clinton administration part 3. if you feel it was such a crisis and panic at that time as many say it was coming out of the calamitous bush administration into the tar, bringing in a team of rivals as obama talked about, all you had was larry summers and tim geithner. both of them have their control over the policies that led to the crisis. in my mind, that opened the door to the tea party. it opened the door to right-wing populism. people saw in this white house favoritism towards goldman sachs and the banks. the problem was the left populism has not emerged until now. for too long, many felt with the bomb in the white house that things would be sorted out. that is where movements become importan
and raising money for him to achieve his second term goals. president clinton didn't have anything like that when he was elected to a second term. no president has had an independent group do that. but barack obama now has that. his election campaign has been turned into an independent group. the chairman of the new group will be a man named jim messina. he is not exactly a political lightweight. his last job was in fact running president obama's 2012 reelection campaign. to have jim messina in charge of this thing means this is not a place where emeritus your friends to keep them on the payroll. this is something that is going to be an active operation with some of the biggest guns in politics at the helm of it. democrats are turning their brightest lights from the two successful campaigns of this president into a political operation that will operate throughout president obama's second term. nobody has any idea what that is going to be like or how that is going to work, because nobody has ever done this before in american politics. joining us now to talk about the inauguration and thi

for president obama as he starts his second term, a pretty heated issue left over from the first term. in one word, benghazi. the secretary of state, hillary clinton, is going to go to capitol hill tomorrow and she's going to have to answer some pretty tough questions from some of her toughest critics, all about the attack that killed the u.s. ambassador to libya last september. ambassador chris stevens died along with three other americans in an assault against the u.s. mission in benghazi. mrs. clinton was supposed to testify last month but she was forced to postpone due to an illness, a concussion and a blood clot near her brain. here are some pictures on monday as mrs. clinton made her way towards the inaugural ceremonies. you can see a service member beside her, but she is on the arm of her husband and needs no additional attention or certainly assistance of any kind. but make no mistake, that was quite an illness she went through. our wolf blitzer is live with us from washington, d.c. wolf, i just want to ask you. as we continue the process of trying find answers as to why what happened
clinton and it took a while for them to get used to obama and sort of trust him and know who he was. and he used a lot of that conversation saying, look, because of you all, i am possible. and i remember we saw congressman lewis there, he was one of the people who had sort of that great turmoil because he was originally for hillary, then he said his consciousness, he changed for barack obama. i think the president gets it, he understands it, and he's very respectful of it. >> i also think about, he spoke about the fierce urgency of now early on. for many in the gay community in the united states, they didn't feel that he had that sense of fierce urgency. i think today after the speech, i think there are a lot of gay and lesbian americans who were surprised to hear a president use the word stonewall and use it in the same sentence as selma and seneca falls and would certainly argue that he now has a sense of fierce urgency of now. >> in by doing so, he has mainstreamed the gay rights movement as a modern civil rights movement and he has put it on the same platform as civil rights, as
of somebody's salary. denise rich, bill clinton's friend, gave up hers. and then you have eric schmidt of google, obama's buddy, he's got a shell corporation in bermuda. interesting the liberal hypocrisy on this, isn't it? >> it is and what's going to happen is states like new york and california are not going to be able to compete with other states like texas, like alaska, like-- >> florida. >> louisiana now, bobby jindal is talking about eliminating the state income tax and nebraska is talking about that and these states are going to draw people in and want to live this and businesses know they can grow and have opportunities that they can't have in places like california and just regular people, just because you're a millionaire, i hate to break it to people, that doesn't mean those people aren't entitled to keep their money, they've earned that money. >> sean: i find that interesting, oh, my heart bleeds. he's paying 63 cents out of every dollar. and keeping 37 cents of every dollar and it sounds to me like you don't care. at some point do you not see that takes away the drive, the
maraniss, the author of "barack obama: the story," now in paperback. and as joe mentioned, former white house press secretary under president clinton and contributing editor to "vanity fai fair", dee dee myers. >> i think dee dee also wrote a book about your boss. >> i did! >> a classic. >> i traveled around america a lot for a while. >> so, david, what were your thoughts, watching the president of the united states in his second inaugural address? a man that you have just completely immersed yourself in over the past several years. >> i thought it was to him a more important inaugural than the first one in so many years. i think he felt assured. i think his whole life of trying to avoid traps and get to a certain place was realized. i think that, you know, when he started politics as a community organizer in chicago, and the mantra then was, you imagine the world as you want it to be and deal with the world as it is. his first inaugural address was about the world as it is or it was at that moment, so it was naturally a little more oblique. this address, he was talking about the world
consequences in a way that bill clinton was not. and what obama meant is that obama changed the ideological course of the country. . in 1981 within two minutes reagan declared government is not the solution government was the problem. and this speech was owed to big government. it was a hymn to big government. >> because it was a stupid thing for ronald reagan to say. where did government spending go under ronald reagan by the way? >> stephanie: yeah. >> hello? the government is not the solution the government is the problem, except when it comes to buying aircraft carry ores. >> stephanie: yeah. bill o'reilly yesterday. >> he appealed to emotion rather than the million -- mechanics of getting everybody in place of recovery. he is on the road to disaster and doesn't seem to care. >> stephanie: wow. >> everything looked disastrous yesterday, didn't it? he looked like it's over men -- >> brown people lying around in costumes. >> my political career is over. i like bill o'reilly saying he appealed to emotion. you know why he said it appealed to emotion, because we get in line! >> s

, in a way that, you know, richard nixon did not. and in a way that bill clinton did not. he put us on a fundamentally different path, because the country was ready for it. >> that wasn't the way president obama talked during his first term, but that was the guy who launched his second term yesterday. in an 18-minute address, the president laid out a defense of liberalism, a forceful argument for progressive values. just as president reagan made the conservative movement mainstream in the '80s, this president wants to mainstream liberalism, to leave a center-left country as his political legacy. >> we have always understood that when times change, so must we. that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges. that preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action. >> the president took on conservative opponents, making this unmistakable reference to wisconsin congressman and republican vice presidential nominee, paul ryan, who called recipients of federal benefits takers during the 2012 presidential campaign. >> the commitments
. unemployment at the beginning of a second term. and as you can see, president obama starts the second term with unemployment at 7.8%. george w., 5.3. clinton, 5.3. reagan was high at 7.3. and richard nixon was at 4.9. >> brian: putting it in perspective, knowing the challenges were different for each president, john meacham, an historian, wrote the book on jefferson, weighed in with bill o'reilly. >> the most important line and not in the speech, it's the fall in media household income over the last 12 years. without rectifying that, this will be an unmemorable presidency and potentially a significantly -- >> how is he going to do that in three years? how is he gog remedy that, turn that around so that the regular folks start to make more money? it seems to me almost inconceivable. almost impossible with his policies. >> with his policies. but i think we're all to blame here. i really do. i think that a lot of people don't want to heart hard truth. people don't want to pay more tax. they don't want to see these cuts. they don't want to embrace the simpson bowles kind of proposals. these ar

'spation proclamation. you can see bill and hillary clinton on the podium. there are also people there celebrating the election of the first african-american president. president obama is only the 16th sitting chief executive to be returned to office. he is the first president since dwight eisenhower to win two consecutive elections with more than 51% of the popular vote. he won for the 372 electoral votes to mitt romney's 206 and spent part of the morning at the white house having coffee with bipartisan leadership. >> this is the second time the president had his inauguration on the celebration of martin luther king, jr. and it's actually a ceremonial event. the 20th amendment to the constitution mandates that newly elected mandates take place on january 20th and several times that happened on the sunday. and followed by the pomp and pageantry on the following monday. >> both president obama and vice president biden took their official oaths of office why yesterday. >> i barack hussein obama swear -- >> supreme court justice john roberts swore in the first family. justice sotomayor did the honor
clinton was president, they said there wouldn't be anybody else who can delivery a speech like him. and now, we have president obama who in how many minutes was that? 18 minutes he packed in a lot of power in words, in flourishes, excuse me, i wrote about this today, the most powerful moment in that speech among many was when he mentioned the word, stonewall, talking about the flash point rights of the gay movement. but he didn't just leave it there. next moment he talked about equality for our gay brothers and sisters. i tell you, that is a lightning bolt in the gay community, now, once those who questioned him being president, now, to hear the president of the united states use one of the most powerful platforms that a president has in the inaugural address to acknowledge and affirm their existence, and their role as -- part of the american story. it is something that will be a pivotal moment in the gay rights history, and for his presidency. >> there was not the legislative -- here is what i will do because of thoughts i have. it is more about core principles. >> and it in fact,
. thank you for being with us. the president came out with a liberal call to action. clinton had moved to center his second term, looks like president obama is headed for the left in his. what do you say? >> farther left than even liberalism, this is progressive, we like the status quo, we don't mind everything turning to big government welfare state. you look at social security and medicare, these programs must be reformed or they will turn to welfare programs similar to medicaid. i don't think barack obama nor his liberal friends in the democratic party in the senate and or the congress or the house mind that happen. it is up to republicans and conservatives who make the case before the american people that is not the right way to go. we need to move more toward a free society which means people should be able to save for their own future. dennis: the president rejected the believe he must choose between caring for the older generation investing in the next generation, but don't we have to make some choices here? cheryl: depends on what i you sy choose between one or the other. we kn
of bill clinton's the era is over. they'll hear no, no, we need more big government. what we've been about, if you ask the american people, president obama should focus on something, would it be equality or economic renewal, most americans would say economic renewal. >> do you think he won't be focusing on it because he spoke about equality today? >> well, not because he spoke about equality today. it is because he elevated it as a central theme of his presidency and he said that without that, there is no progress. no economic -- that comes morally and i think linearly first. that's not i think what the american people would think. >> but here's what i think is actually happening. the trickle down economic model that says, when the wealthy do well, everybody else will do better. i think it has been discredited. i think what obama firmly believes is that the economy grows from the middle class out. so therefore, it used to be the case you would say either you're concerned about growth or about equality. i think what obama believes is that when you have too much inequality, you cannot get th
that is where the obamas are from. there's a whole group of obamas i'm going to deal with any more substantive way than what the zero of where the story comes from the reminded me a little bit of what i was doing in the clinton book and it was in clinton's acceptance they had a film in southwestern arkansas and the simplicity of local life and he's from hot springs, a completely different place when with a dark side to it. the obama story is not the ciro and the story of his father takes place somewhere else and that is where the section of the book will start. >> host: one final question. we want to introduce their viewers [inaudible] >> leo you cannot make up. he belongs in an awful. he's 73-years-old triet he walks around with a menacing sort of club, she has a deep voice and laugh and he seems to know everybody in africa from the area the president of tanzania, the dictator of ugonda back in the 70's and 80's to everybody in kenya and he traveled with us. we met him yesterday and had three or four hours of fascinating discussions and then he traveled with us today in the morning and he was

about having flipped the expectations the. i think it was president clinton pretheir man crush who said that he can -- the bromance back when they were still somewhat at odds who said he can give a pretty speech but can he do anything else? what obama has proven-- and i throw this out to everybody to see if there's a counter example-- is that the greatest president-- and i would argue f.d.r., johnson, reagan, jackson i think jefferson were people who could both project a vision that made present pain and sacrifice seem an investment in beater country, tomorrow, future and who had the legislative skills, the mechanical skills to cut deals and get it done. doris' lincoln is the great example of that. the great presidents can do both and i think the president has proven oddly that he's pretty good at both but he hasn't brought them together in the same moment. and that's the challenge going forward. >> i would agree completely and the other thing is that the president has been plagued by this reputation of his as an orator that comes from 2004. >> rose: primarily answer prags >> absolutely

of a greek future. there is nothing of that in this speech. obama has zero interest in that, and this was a declaration that his interest is to restore us to the liberal ascendancy of 60 years that reagan stopped. he gave us these three decades, and clinton in the middle of the three decades said in his '96 state of the union address the era of big government is over. the speech was a declaration was the era of big government is back, i'm the man who will do it. jon: now let's talk with bill kristol, is he right, is the era of big government back? >> well, if president obama has his way, it will be. i don't think he'll have his way. there's a republican house, and more or important, there's a reality. it is a striking speech. i mean, he is -- and i think useful and clarifying speech. i think conservatives who were complaining about it are missing the boat. this is very helpful to have president obama make clear that what he's in favor of is bigger government at home and retrenchment abroad. those present clear choices, and i think, very clear dangers for the country, and it
